Bug Description

From Derick Eddington:
Since opaque records aren't supposed to reveal their RTD (which prevents inspection) and they can't even be determined with record?, and I'd like to be able to rely on opaque records to enforce security of sensitive information encapsulation, I favor that opaque records print as only #<record>
